    Indeed
    My memories of Richmond are of it being a very non ethnic area, by London standards.

    I've heard it (unfairly) suggested that Richmond residents are so old that they will be dead by the time Heathrow is extended - and any that aren't will quickly be finished off by the additional pollution - so they weren't bothered on that issue.

    But they were all very concerned about the future of their French gîtes, Spanish holiday homes, Polish builders and Swedish care workers, and so didn't like Goldmith's stance on Brexit.

    Couldn't possibly be true, could it?

    You're the one with the (reliable?) contacts on the ground. You tell us.

    That would explain why every ward in Richmond gave Zac a significant majority in the mayoriial election and his mayoriial campaign was irrelevant yesterday.

    Oh, I don't know. Sir Trevor MacDonald has a nice house up by Richmond Park, and I believe Mo Farah lives in Richmond ...

    Didn't Farah move to the USA? Ages back... not sure if he's moved back since.

    My only contacts are my middle son and his wife, who are both out at work in Canary Wharf all day long, so I couldn't tell you any more than you already know.
